Apple’s MobileMe service set to debut

Apple’s MobileMe service is primed to go into this week, ahead of the Friday mobileme launch of the iPhone 3G. That means subscribers to .Mac will find the service taken offline for a six-hour stretch as Apple makes the transition, according to a post in MacRumors.com.

The www.mac.com site will go down on Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. PDT, leaving .Mac subscribers unable to access the site or use .Mac services, except for .MacMail via their desktop applications, iPhone or iPod Touch. In fact, existing .Mac users may have already noticed their email has morphed to an @me.com address.

When the site re-launches as MobileMe, users will find a few changes, according to MacRumors.com.

The revamped .Mac service will offer web-based email, calendar, addressbook, photo gallery and storage capabilities as well as “Push” sync services.

A one-year subscription to MobileMe will run $99, which is similar to the .Mac price, but purchasers of an iPhone 3G will be able to score a subscription for $69 on Friday, the report notes.
